Florida church given 60 days to pay debts or face auction

A West Palm Beach church has been given 60 days to pay its debts or go on the auction block.

A Palm Beach Circuit judge ruled earlier this month that Westgate Tabernacle must raise $60,000 to pay a family that sued five years ago after their daughter was injured when struck by the church's uninsured van.

The Palm Beach Post reports the church has been struggling financially for years and at one point had amassed nearly $100,000 in code enforcement liens for issues including inadequate plumbing and faulty wiring.

Westgate Bishop Ronnie Green says the church doesn't have the money, but that "Jesus will provide with the help of the people."
